       PPI::Token::Data - The actual data in the __DATA__ section of a file


         isa PPI::Token
             isa PPI::Element


       The "PPI::Token::Data" class is used to represent the actual data inside a file's
       "__DATA__" section.

       One "PPI::Token::Data" object is used to represent the entire of the data, primarily so
       that it can provide a convenient handle directly to the data.


       "PPI::Token::Data" provides one method in addition to those provided by our parent
       PPI::Token and PPI::Element classes.

       The "handle" method returns a IO::String handle that allows you to do all the normal
       handle-y things to the contents of the __DATA__ section of the file.

       Unlike in perl itself, this means you can also do things like "print" new data onto the
       end of the __DATA__ section, or modify it with any other process that can accept an
       IO::Handle as input or output.

       Returns an IO::String object.


       See the support section in the main module.
